Laravel 9.39 Released

The Laravel team released 9.39 this week with Blade template fragments, source output in collection dumps, a new database empty assertion, and more.

Blade template fragments

Bruno Alod contributed Blade template fragments, which render a portion of the view. Fragments are helpful for frontend frameworks that expect HTML over-the-wire, where AJAX responses should only return part of the view.

Given the following Blade template:

2 First Name {{ $firstName }}
3 Last Name: {{ $lastName }}
5 @fragment('actions')
6 <div hx-target="this">
7 @if($enabled)
8 <button hx-patch="/mark-as-disabled">Mark as Disabled</button>
9 @else
10 <button hx-patch="/mark-as-enabled">Mark as Enabled</button>
11 @endif
12 </div>
13 @endfragment

You can render only the actions fragment as follows:

1view('users.profile', $data)->fragment('actions');

Add the source file to Collection dd() calls

Hasyirin Fakhriy added the source file path when using dd() in collections. In recent releases of Laravel, dd() and dump() calls have started including path traces to make it clear which file is dumping output. This update targets collections to benefit from that work as well:

2 'version' => App::version(),
6array:1 [▼ // routes/web.php:19
7 "version" => "9.39.0"

Assert if the database is empty

Christoph Rumpel contributed an assertDatabaseEmpty() which checks if a specific table has no entries. It is a shortcut to asserting database count of zero:

1// Using count
2$this->assertDatabaseCount(MyModel::class, 0);
4// Using the new assertion in v9.39
